Paternity – Divorce In JacksonvilleAuthor: FWLG

Parental Rights & Responsibilities in Florida
For women, there is no question whether or not a child is theirs. For men, however, it is not always that clear and it can be very important when it comes to divorce cases or custody matters. If you and your partner were not married at the time your children were born, and there was no “Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity” form in place, would-be fathers may be denied custody or visitation rights for their children. Likewise, if paternity was not previously established an alleged father may be removed from the responsibility of child support payments and other duties.
At Florida Women’s Law Group, we have seen a wide variety of these cases, ranging from those wishing to prove paternity to those wishing to refute it. You can rest assured that our Jacksonville paternity attorneys can help you no matter what your paternity issues may be.
